IGA Postgrads Call for Bloggers

updated: 
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 9:16am
International Gothic Association Postgraduates
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 31, 2018

The International Gothic Association postgraduate blog is looking for bloggers and podcasters!  

 

If you are a graduate student working with any aspect of the Gothic, consider writing us a short blog post, or recording us a podcast. It could relate to your work, or any other Gothic tangent that has taken your interest. Blogs should be around 600 words; short, snappy and conversational, with the aim of sparking conversation within the IGA community. If you want to write a blog longer than 600 words, we would encourage you to split it into two or more parts, but these are supposed to be informal rather than articles or papers.

The Ghosts of the Nineteenth Century and the Future of Medieval Studies (postmedieval 10.2)

Despite the changing nature of medievalism, the specter of the nineteenth century continues to haunt us in myriad ways—from table manners to how we tell stories, from the organization of civil society to our expectations of personal morality. But perhaps nowhere is this truer than in the study of the Middle Ages, where nineteenth-century modes of philological and historical inquiry continue to serve as the gold standard for scholarship.

CFP: Gothic Animals: Uncanny Otherness and the Animal With-Out

The boundary between the animal and the human has long been unstable, especially since the Victorian period. Where the boundary is drawn between human and animal is itself an expression of political power and dominance, and the ‘animal’ can at once express the deepest fears and greatest aspirations of a society (Victorian Animal Dreams, 4).

The animal, like the ghost or good or evil spirit with which it is often associated, has been a manifestation of the uncanny (Timothy Clark, 185).

We are excited to announce the Call for Papers for Transitions: Bridging the Victorian-Modernist Divide. The conference is set to be held on 9th and 10th of April 2018 at the University of Birmingham. Transitions is an international, interdisciplinary conference seeking to open a dialogue between Victorianist and Modernist scholars. The conference will interrogate the historical, theoretical and thematic divides that have evolved from the artificial critical boundary set at the turn of the century. Panelists are invited to reconsider and discuss the aesthetic, social, political, technological, artistic, scientific, cultural and textual relationship between the Victorian and Modernist periods, in a global context.

The Rosette Maleficarum prides itself on literary works that promote the darker aspects of life. From a dilapidated doll that watched her owner abandon her, to the ghost of a soldier  who wanders the battlefield, the journal records to struggles of humanity. Even so, I’m open to little innocent lights, ones that bring back the nostalgia of our youth. But who knows? Just send a piece in, and perhaps it could be published here.

We propose to devote a thematic section of Issue 2/2018 of the Journal "L'Analisi linguistica e letteraria" (www.analisilinguisticaeletteraria.eu) to expressions of creative writing inspired by monuments. Our aim is to understand how and why diverse re/constructions of their specific genesis, descriptions of architectural features, explanations of symbolism, histories of mentors, sponsors and artists generate over/interpretations in the form of essays, short stories, historical novels and poems. Each article will investigate the ways in which writers, while speculating on and verbally reconstructing a monument, can instil aesthetic and ideological appreciations.

Conference Theme: "Global Spaces, Local Landscapes, and Imagined Worlds"

Trans-spaces in 19th Century France

Saturday, September 30, 2017

19th-century France is known as a time of transgression, an upheaval of societal norms. But aside from the multiple political revolutions, this time period also gave way to figures that managed to exist between the binaries of society. Examples of transgression, transformation, and transgender can be found throughout the century, ranging from Romanticism’s “génie sans sexe”- George Sand- to J.K. Huysman’s decadent, androgynous, dandy- Des Esseintes. This proposed session invites papers that examine representations of these trans-spaces in and around the literature of the 19th century. Papers could consider biographical, literary, or historical moments of “trans”.

Are We Victorian?

In 1875, Anthony Trollope published The Way We Live Now, a novel about financial crises, political corruption, debt, and xenophobia. These topics are familiar to us as well: The Way We Live Now is, in many ways, still the way we live now.

Much recent debate in Victorian studies has concerned “presentism”—the idea that we still live with in a Victorian world. Presentism says that there is not much new about “neoliberalism:” as the manifesto of the V21 collective puts it, “In finance, resource mining, globalization, imperialism, liberalism, and many other vectors, we are Victorian, inhabiting, advancing, and resisting the world they made."
